Update: And it's official, folks.

Some new pricing and launch date info on the LG G-Slate for T-Mobile has emerged, just a couple days away from its expected in-store availability. The highly anticipated tablet from T-Mobile and LG will cost you $529.99 on contract after a $100 mail in rebate and $749.99 at full retail price. The tablet is set to hit stores this Wednesday, April 20. That $529.99 pricing is the same number we saw a few weeks ago. Not surprising, but this is also the same day as the T-Mobile event coming up this Wednseday night in New York City (we'll be there!).

But the new G-Slate isn't the only new Android powered device we'll see this Wednesday. The G2X, T-Mobile's first dual-core powered phone, and the Sidekick 4G will also launch this Wednesday. The Sidekick on contrant will set you back $99.99 after a $50 mail in rebate on a new two year contract. If you don't want to do the contract thing, the phone will cost you $379.99. As for the G2X, the 3D powered cell phone on contract will be $199.99 after a $50 mail in rebate. And again, if you don't do the contract thing, it's gonna cost you $499.99. Whooo... okay, now who's getting what this Wednesday? [TmoNews]

T-Mobile G-Slate launch date and pricing leaked


...seriously? Single core vs. Dual core. 2.2 vs. Honeycomb. Screen size. LG has 3d. And then you have Samsung 's poor build quality and updates. No comparison.

The average Joe will only see the difference in screen size. More than twice the price. Tough sell.

To buy or not to buy on a company that might not be around for much longer? hummmm I think not I'll wait

That's going to be a lot less than a xoom on contract I suppose. Magic would be $499 though, then it would sell sell sell especially with some good commercials.

I was interested in the LG G-Slate when it was announced. But I wanted a wifi only version.

With the announcement of the Asus eeePad Transformer coming late April early May and a potential price point of $499 for the 32GB model, the Transformer is a better deal. For me at least. Even if the 32GB model comes in at $599 or $699 it's a better deal. Having the ability to record or play in 3D, IMHO, is not worth an extra $150-400 over the Transformer.

Of course that could all change once I actually get to play with the G-slate. :)

I'll take door number three... Asus Transformer with same spec's and starts at $399 or $550 with a KB dock + full size USB, SD and an extra 8 hour battery built in the KB.

3D is a joke. A few kids will buy it for a handful of games then get bored. Next.
